Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I give Bleacher Report's WWE coverage a lot of shit due to a lot of the articles not making the least bit of sense for marks OR smarts, but this guy absolutely nails the causes of the WWE's issues head on:

Vastly over-simplifying for summary purposes, WWE essentially grew beyond its britches and wanted to be both Hollywood (in terms of entertainment) and Wall Street (in terms of being a big, publically traded company). The end result is that the wrestling product gets watered down by both, since Hollywood doesn't like rasslin' and Wall Street doesn't like controversy.
